    Ok yeah we're good

    That was fast.

    Everything's resolved, ignore my previous blog post.

    My writing will continue as usual.

    A status update on that, while I'm here: The next chapter of Hocus Pocus is about half done.  I'm working hard to get it to you ASAP.

    Just a quick heads up

    Hi readers,

    Just so you all know, I'm in a bit of a minor crisis.  Hopefully will be resolved within a day or two but since I don't know that for sure, writing's on hold until it's taken care of.

    My fics will continue, don't worry.  This isn't even a hiatus.  Just a brief pause while I take care of something, uhh, problematic.

    Hopefully I'll be back soon to tell you everything's resuming as usual.

    Fanfics and Ferrets

    I haven't given you guys an update in a long while, so have some news!

    First, yes, I'm still working on Hocus Pocus.  Slowly.  I was in a slump for a good while but things seem to be picking up.

    However, it's on hold for just short time while I once again enter the EQD pre-reader battle!  This is a short event where some of the EQD pre-readers exchange prompts and write short stories, all of which are posted by the end of the designated time period.  Last time I was in this event, I wrote Infallible, which enjoyed more popularity than it probably deserved.  I can't say exactly what I'm working on this time, except that fans of Hocus Pocus may recognize the main character! (And those who aren't reading Hocus Pocus will still be able to read the new story if they want. It doesn't require anything from Hocus Pocus to fully understand.)

    Second,, I'm incredibly excited, because on July 17th, I'm making a trip to Canada to finally meet my closest friend in the MLP fandom, MaskedFerret, in person!  I'll be spending a few days there with her and probably finishing up the short story mentioned above while there, and I'll be sure to say a little about how the visit went when I get back the following week.  So wish me luck!

    That's all for now!  Expect a new short story, and hopefully also chapter 16 of Hocus Pocus, in the reasonably near future!

    I'm Stuck

    Hey there, readers.

    By now you're probably noticing my fic output has just been going downhill for some months now.

    I kept hoping that it was mainly because of school, and that once I graduated and actually had a shred of free time, fics would be written quickly again.

    Well, I'm out of school now (with a Bachelor's degree in Biology, at that!) but a week has gone by and I'm still not doing much of anything with fics.

    I'm NOT burned out on pony as a whole.  I watched and enjoyed all of season 4, and I still read fics, check out art and animations, and do stuff for Equestria Daily.  But for some reason I seem to be stuck in one monster of a rut regarding writing.

    So that's the news on that!  None of my fics are cancelled, but wait times for the remaining chapters of Hocus Pocus, or for the other fics I have planned, are unknown.  They'll be out once I get the will to put them on paper.  Hopefully some of you will still be sticking around long enough for that!

    Hopefully I'll have something new for you all soon,

After an unfortunate incident involving Rainbow Dash and herbal tea, Fluttershy wakes up one morning to discover that she has turned into a rabbit!  With her friends unaware of her plight, Fluttershy must turn to Angel bunny to guide her on her quest to restore her original form.  In the process, she is given the oppurtunity to experience everyday life in Ponyville from a whole new perspective, and discovers that there is much more to her friends' pets than she ever expected.

Oh my fucking god yes.

Take my money, TAKE IT.

#2 · 131w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

The concept is over used in personally for me in cartoons but this is good :rainbowdetermined2:

#3 · 131w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

OH SHIT ANGEL IS THE FUCKING MOB!!!!!!!!

#4 · 131w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

@Sir Lionheart Angel

That he is.  Sweet, innocent little Fluttershy doesn't realize that, of course.

#5 · 131w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Sweet Celestia, yes! This is excellent, and I love the personality you gave to Angel! Five moustaches, a like, and a watch for you!

:moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

#6 · 131w, 4d ago · 1 · · Chapter 1 ·

Now I will always imagine Angel as a mobster.  Just need to find him a tiny Tommy gun. :yay:

#7 · 131w, 4d ago · 1 · · Chapter 1 ·

So, like...

Am I the only one imagining Angel being voiced by Joe Pesci?

Just out of curiosity.

#8 · 131w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I like this.

and Gummy HAS to make an appearance.

#9 · 131w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

>>458999

Yeah as the enemy mafia gang or something

#10 · 131w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

>>459154

nah, I picture him more as the crazy guy that acquires.....things for the right price.

I mean, he lives with Pinkie Pie. imagine what kinda stuff he could get his gums on.

#11 · 131w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

>>459178

Hmmm seems legit

#12 · 131w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Copying my comment on the deviant art, this is Brilliant so far!  So looking for more of this already

#13 · 131w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

@Blackbelt

Don't you worry.  Gummy will DEFINITELY be in this later.

#14 · 131w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Tracking this. I love how Angel has a little mafia operation running and how Fluttershy has no clue.

#15 · 131w, 3d ago · 1 · · Chapter 1 ·

You have no idea what you have created, have you? Well you do since you created it... but you have no idea how much yes I give.

All my yes to this. And my money, and house and ex-girlfriend. Except that last one - trust me, you wouldn't want it.

#16 · 131w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

We absolutely MUST meet the other pony pets in this story! Opalescence, Winona, Gummy, Tank, Owlowscious... Maybe Philomena?

I have to wonder how the bunny mob works... Is it quite as brutal as an earth mob? I'd suspect not, seeing how, you know, it's Equestria and all, but I can't imagine Fluttershy will be very pleased to find out about Angel's 'business.'

It's weird though. You said that he had a slight italian (neightalian) accent... but I honestly couldn't help but hear him be voiced by Scott McNeil (Rattrap from Beast Wars) 'cept that Rattrap had a Brooklyn Accent. I 'unno... guess it's 'cause New York was so well known for the mob alongside Chicago...

There are only a few things I can really criticize here... The first is that Rainbow Dash seems really kinda out of character at the beginning. I'm surprised that she'd be so into Las Pegasus, at least for the things she says... since when has Rainbow Dash ever really been interested in Cultural stuff? Sounds more like Rarity's gig. I dunno, If she were squeeing about the city, I'd think she'd be more into the Casinos and the Bars and maybe some random Wonderbolts trivia or something (maybe Spitfire hails from Las Pegasus?) ...Not Restaurants and Culture and Scenic views and stuff of that ilk...

The other thing is there's some really awkward wording that kinda takes you out of the story in a few different places. One was that 'collective terms' thing, which seems a bit verbose for the Angel you're portraying... Another is the part "I know this is a whole new experience for you, and I can see that if I let you, you’d keep throwin’ questions at me all day.  But here's the bottom line; you can't rely on your pony pals to help you this time.  Now, I seem to recall you wanting to try to do something about this sudden transformation of yours, and we ain’t exactly making any progress just sitting here" Which really stands out as basically the author just saying 'yeah there are a lot of questions to ask, but we need to get the story moving.' That's the sort of thing that breaks flow and immersion. There are a few other spots that are worded awkwardly but those two are the biggest.

Don't get me wrong though, it is a really interesting story and seems like it'll make for some really fun situations...

Yes... We need more of this. Do continue please. I have to know where this is going...

#17 · 131w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Ok, what??? I don't know how to respond to this... But I think I like it! To soon to tell though. And what's with the bunny mob? Do they offer "protection" or do they deal in drugs (what would a bunny consider a drug anyway?) and weapons and stuff? Anyway, I liked shipping and handling, so I'm sure this one will be just as enjoyable. Good work!

#18 · 131w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Lol if there's a pun in the title I'll read it

#19 · 131w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

@Cheerilee-party-hard

Of course, the bunny mafia will be expanded upon.  Wait for the later chapters.

@infinite scratch

So far I have two stories.  Both have pun titles.  Expect more in the future.

#20 · 129w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

this story is f***ing adorable! :yay:

#21 · 129w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

"with what sounded like a Neightalian accent"

I'm sorry, I'm afraid the answer we were looking for was "Istallion."

On the other hoof, HOLY SHIT A BUNNY MAFIA! Why has no one thought of this before?! All of the yes is being hurled in your direction! Do not screw this up, capice?

#22 · 129w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I LOVED IT! :heart::pinkiesmile: But I can't wait for the sequel! I WON'T sleep tonight wonderin wut'll happen to Fluttershy! :ajsmug:

#23 · 129w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I like the happy fanfics! (You see that I am a Pinkie Pie kind of brony?) :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

#24 · 129w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Lol @ the bunny mafia.  This looks interesting.  Tracking.

#25 · 129w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Aww shucks Flutters... Ah jus' didn't recognize y'all there. Ya know, all y'all bunnies look the same t'us ponies. :ajsmug:

>>523734 Seconded! :twilightsmile:

#26 · 129w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I came here because of the tag "Rabbit Mafia" :pinkiehappy:

#27 · 129w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

you got me at every bunny. u know it took me forever ti alter my human vocabulary to ponys

everyone>evrypony but now everybunny *Tracking*

#28 · 129w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Oh my, Angel is perfect in this story! It might make me actually like him! I know for sure that if I see him in the show I'm not going to be able to look at him the same way.:rainbowlaugh:

#29 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I await a protection racket at some point

#30 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

So...Angel is the mafia leader of the bunnies? :rainbowhuh: Never saw it like that before...

But, gotta say that I love where this story is heading. Although Fluttershy should just write her problem down on some paper and show it to Applejack.

Keep track of this story. Keep it up! :pinkiehappy:

#31 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Why does "cooperate and listen" rings me a bell?

Las Pegasus sounds like a pretty good place to spend vacations, but wouldn't somepony notice that Fluttershy's baggage is still there?

#32 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I could think of no better way to portray Angel.

favourited :twilightsmile:

#33 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

@The Brave and Mightly Pepper

Yeah, I've had the image of mobster Angel in my head for ages, I just had to get it out into a story.:twilightsheepish:

#34 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

the only reason i gave this a try was because of two words....Rabbit. Mafia. :rainbowlaugh: and im glad i did!:pinkiehappy:

#35 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I've always imagined Angel with a Brooklyn accent. Just for that alone, I love this. :yay:

#36 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Angel's the Don. He runs a protection racket. Those are my theories. I dare you to try and poke holes in it.

#37 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Angel is a Mob boss.

Yeah, I think this is the best fanfic ever.

#38 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I like it. :yay:

Keep it up. :pinkiehappy:

#39 · 129w, 3d ago · 1 · · Chapter 1 ·

Of course Angel is a mob boss.

I'm just wondering what Tank is...

#40 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Hmmmm i wonder if the tea had any side effects :derpyderp2:

Also I hope the bunnies aren't having trouble with the local Gryphon minority, i hear they are carnivorous! :eeyup:

Good story! *favorite*

#41 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

LOL I think at this stage the flower was heart's desire. TRACKING

#42 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Very good story.

Just don't describe the transformation in graphic detail.

If you do. . . I'll say it like Zecora: "Beware, Beware, my dear, dear, author: I fear such imagery will bring out the clopper."

Keep it up!

#43 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

@Pederia

Fluttershy wasn't even conscious when the transformation occurred; I don't think she could describe it if she wanted to.

And describing it is just irrelevant, so don't worry, I won't. :scootangel:

#44 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I am liking where this is going. This looks like it's going to be one awesome story. :yay:

#45 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Wait a second... Main Mare? oh my Celestia, tell me that is a reference to Lobo. It's a good story, and I'd like to see more, so, tracking it is! :pinkiehappy:

#46 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

@Azkhare

No intentional refrence to whatever Lobo is, sorry.

#47 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Huh, don't think I've seen a "Fluttershy transforming into a rabbit" story before.  So kudos on that.

I can only assume based on the tags that they're going to see Owlowiscious, that he's going to write out a message for Twilight and problem  solved.

#48 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Somehow, I find it completely unsurprising and totally in character for Angel Bunny to be running a Mafia family. :pinkiecrazy:

Good stuff, I wanna read more. :eeyup:

#49 · 129w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

The animals pounced on the food like they hadn't eaten in days....

Angel has a special stash of carrots.....

Am I sensing a connection here? :pinkiegasp:
